the beginning, greta, nobody else has said it. i have always thought this election would be a solid romney victory on the order of obama's defeat of mccain, a near land slide. >> greta: tomorrow morning in morning, the jobs report comes out, on the serious side, so many americans are without work. that's enormously distressing. there is a political part of that. if that number stays the same as the national average or gets worse, is that going to have any appreciable effect, do you think, on the campaign for the president? >> well, i think tell have the same deflatingesque as the jobs report after the democratic convention last time did. last month, it came out the day after obama's speech. i think it took some wind out of his sails. but i think there were very specific things things that romy accomplished that is important to focus on. number 1, obama agreed there was no difference between them on social security. and obama agreed that neither of their medicare plans would hurt existing elderly or anyone about to retire. they disagreed on the $716 million that obama caught current retiree

. romney, totally amoral, apolitical sense i thought his performance last night was masterful if not brilliant. >> rose: masterful and brilliant. >> yes. >> where do we go from here? what should we watch for? >> last time around john kerry we talked about, as a coach and sparring partner he did good against scroo w in 2004 election and the second debate of that kerry was vice president's debate in which after the president losing the debate if you will, then dick cheney who is very, blue edwards out of the room like well until this time i don't think we have met before, very established way to put that, you know people like this. you know how you do it, you just say i don't think we met before, like you are a nobody. and he was very good at that, very good and putting them away and i think that turned it back so the debates wouldn't be lethal to the incumbent president, this time, i think joe biden, he has flaws, his establish isn't precise some time but up against a guy child kind of a cold customer, i think he can beat him in terms of likablability if he stays joe biden out

on to their words and be deferential, in fact i thought mitt romney to his credit was respectful, he was even, in fact in the beginning about the president's 20th anniversary and he was nice and more than civil, i thought he was almost cordial in the beginning but tough and one thing he was not was deferential and i think the president was put off by that, he thought somehow romney who is trying the take his job away from him was going to be deferential to him as president and he wasn't and the real estate wasn't ready for that i think that was the big change last night. >> it is almost like when he faced governor romney last night he said this is not the guy i expected, he is better. >> well, he was great you have to wonder whether he saved that self of him, the intord room ceo presence, the man who can walk into a room with a portfolio for the business of the day knowing he will be the one to set the agenda, and in all fairness that was the format, i mean jim lehrer was told basically throw out the pot and let them fight for it, don't be the one there trying to dictate terms and rules of en

romney had the better of the debate. i thought he dispelled stereotypes of individualists. i thought he looked happier to be there. i thought he was certainly more aggressive. and finally i guess i would say the president missed out on a lot of opportunities to mention the 47%, to echo some of the themes the democratic ad campaigns which have been so successful. i thought on balance it was a good night for mitt romney. griewd what did you think about that, mark? >> i was amazed the 47% didn't come up. i think what we saw more than anything the rust from the president not having been in a debate, quite frankly, for four years. and i thought that mitt romney, the challenger always, with the president, gets an advantage, just by being there on the same stage and beeb at least equal. i thought that romney did quite well in making his case. he seemed comfortable. he seemed confident. he didn't seem mean spirited. i was amazed the president didn't rebut the the $716 billion charge. it's a phony charge. it's been-- i mean, it's been fact checked after fact checked, and the president-- that's w

to a cnn poll, 67% of adults thought romney won the debate compared to just 25% who picked the president. 46% of undecided voters in a cbs poll gave the win to romney to just 22% for mr. obama. nearly a third of the undecideds were undecided. romney's positive rating rose above 50% for the first time in this campaign in a reuters poll. the president's ratings stayed unchanged at 56%. romney stayed on the attack even though his positions were to be charitable and flatly untrue. here's some of what he said about his tax plan and the economy. >> romney: i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class but i'm not going to reduce the share of taxes paid by high income people. we have 23 million people out of work. or stop look for work in this country. >> eliot: here's how the obama campaign responded to some of the claims. with an ad released this afternoon that relied on fact

thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been painted in the media and by the obama campaign for the last seven or eight months. and then the person they saw last night. that's why i think it was so effective for mitt romney because people were so surprised. wait, like who is this guy? this is not the guy we thought he was. and so he had a great debate. incumbents presidents usually don't do well on the first debate in their election year. so obama will have a couple more chances. no doubt, there is only one person in america who thinks he won the debate. and he happens to be with us here today. >> did you take your medication or are you -- >> i'm so delighted to be the skunk at our garden party this afternoon. [ laughter ] i must tell you. first of all, i think twitter and the whole blogosphere thing made that the first presidential debate scored minute by minute and it drove the consensus that obama was crushed. obama was devastated. you know what? this is such -- >> it wasn't -- >> you could

that was a jolt to a lot of folks who thought this guy will be from help for me or calculate that as governor romney, the rich guys are not going to president obama, they will go to me. i had a chance to win over a broader base. >> i can't say what was in the head, but i think it was the right pitch in general, and certainly, what the tea party is looking for. i never heard them say i want massive across the board cuts. neil: i have. a lot of the colleagues, not as honest as you, last year, i said, close the tax loopholes, they said no, no, no, when you do that, people pay more taxes. what if you remove loopholes prevented them from paying any taxes like reagan in 1986. no, no, no, that's a tax increase. mitt romney says, no, it's not. paul ryan said, no, it's not. that was a quiet game changer. >> it might be. i don't know who you talk to in the tea party -- neil: your tea party. >> you say "your tea party" like i know -- neil: i talked to many of the 83 newly collected congressmen in 2010, many of whom were tea party, many of whom nixed the budget deal last year because it included closing

to see you. what was your thought watching the debate last night? you've been up against mitt romney in the early part of the year, pretty relentlessly. he's obviously a good debater. i have never seen him quite do as well as he did last night. what did you think? >> yeah. you know, i thought about this a lot. i really thought that this is exactly what he had to do. he had to go on the offensive. he had to confront, particularly confront president obama on the mischaracterizations of both his record and governor romney's record, and if he did that, i really believe that president obama has just never been challenged like that before and that it would get under his skin a little bit and it clearly did, and once mitt got in that rhythm, i just think there was no stopping him. i don't think -- i think the reason we haven't seen romney like that is because when you're in a debate with seven or eight people, it's hard to get into a rhythm. it's hard to really have that kind of energy and keep it up when you're only getting one question every 15 minutes. so it really, the form worked perfe

as was the case last night with mitt romney. >> some people have said they thought president obama seemed almost irritated to be confronted like that. you think part of that, if it was irritation, that comes from the idea that he's been surrounded in this sort of presidential bubble where people aren't attacking him to his face. >> yeah, i think there is a lot to that theory. and also, even in the rehearsals, even in the debate preps, i think there's maybe a tendency on the part of the people surrounding a president to go a little easy, not to be too assertive and aggressive with him. >> in the past when candidates have had poor debate performances, do we know what their staffs have done to get them back on track, to make sure they don't make the same mistakes twice, to recalibrate? >> yeah. a lot of different things. reagan for instance was told after his disastrous first debate in '84 to go back to his instincts and just sort of think in themes. set aside all the facts and just think about how you feel about particular issues. but my favorite example is al gore in 2000. he had a really bad fir
